You just can't truly comprehend the adoration...

My littlest nephew turned 3 yesterday. Yes, I see him a lot since they live close by.  He loves the movie "Cars", he loves the tv show "Yo Gabba Gabba", and he ADORES the tv show "The Wiggles". A D O R E S the Wiggles!!!
So he got to have a car cake... made by his mom (my sister Karen). And my mom and I came to the party and we each gave him some Yo Gabba Gabba toys. Of which he was thrilled! 
But it is a good thing that he opened the Yo Gabba Gabba toys first... because right after that his two big brothers each gave him two of the Wiggles action figures (yes, I told my brother-in-law we would call them action figures...just for his peace of mind...his sons do not play with dolls!) So here he is below clutching his Wiggles action figures. When he opened the first two, he kind of went into a trance and started walking away with them mumbling, "Wiggles...Wiggles." We had to call him to come back to open the rest of his presents. Pretty cute photo!
So the picture below kind of gives you an idea of the joy he felt from even one Wiggle action figure...Life is good for the Wy boy!
Here he is with his Wiggles guitar that his parents bought him. You can just push a button and one or all of the Wiggles sing one of their songs. Wyatt just kept repeating, "Wiggles guitar."
All in all a VERY fun celebration! I still can't help smiling at how excited the little guy was.

Dusty Book Behavior

But I think a librarian, who I just got off the phone with, needs to learn some phone etiquette. He was very demeaning as I asked him questions about downloading audio books via the library system. A couple of times during the conversation I wanted to reach through the phone and pop him one!
I think he is cranky cuz his name isn't Marion the Librarian (Reference: The Music Man). Or maybe he is cranky cuz his name IS Marion! ; )
Needless to say, he was not very nice.
I choose to be happy today. It is payday, it is sunny outside, and it is Friday! And I don't want to go around popping people! So I choose to move on from his dusty book behavior. I mean is that necessary? I shout a big NO into cyberspace.
So excited for my weekend to start in 2 hours!!! (Marion, quit being mean. Maybe you need a vacation.)

A Sweet Thing

So baby Wy was walking around his family's house on Sunday morning saying, "Dason, where are you?" He kept repeating it. Finally his mom said, "Wyatt, Jason is in heaven now." And Wy said, "Okay." And stopped calling for him. 
It just gave me a warm feeling when my sister told me what happened. I have always heard that little children are closer to the other side. And I like to think that Wy has seen Jason. And I bet he has.

2 Year Old Artist...Proud Aunt Alert!

So my two year old nephew Wy-Wy (who is almost 3), is following in the footsteps of most of our family. He likes to draw. We are pretty proud of him...Check out his drawings below...

Here are the Wiggles. Not sure if you are all familiar with this kid show. But there are 4 guys in the group who sing and dance. Wy can rattle off their names quickly. Jeff, Muwway (Murray), Antony (Anthony), and I forgot the 4th one's name! (Wy would be mortified that I forgot.) They all wear a different color of shirt and then they all wear black pants. I think the composition is amazing. He is great at the eyes and mouth on each person. Good job, Wy-Wy!  We all think it is pretty cool!

Here is SpongeBob Squarepants. Notice the eyelashes. And the sponge circles. Seriously, I doubt I did that much detail at 2 years old! I am excited to watch Wy-Wy progress in his artistic skills as he grows up. He is pretty good at keeping the color inside the images too.
I am pretty proud of the little guy! Most kids his age basically do scribbles or lines on a paper.
